nina (natalie portman) is a ballerina in a new york city ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is completely consumed with dance. when artistic director thomas leroy (cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina beth macintyre (ryder) for the opening production of their new season black swan, nina is his first choice. but nina has competition, a new dancer: lily (kunis) who impresses both the white swan requires a dancer who can play both white swan with innocence and grace, and the black swan, who represents quile and sensuality. nina fits the white swan perfectly but lily is the personification of the black swan. as the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship. nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side- a reckless that threatens to destroy her.
this movie won oscar gold and also i enjoy this movie.
I bought this DVD because I am a fan of Director Darren Aronofsky, and the talents of Natalie Portman and Vincent Cassell. I loved the movie, the thematic elements and storyline, and the Special features. This product was worth the time and effort. This movie was one of the Nominees for Best Pictureof 2010. Ms. Portman did win Best Actress Oscar for 2010 from her performance in this movie, "The Black Swan".
This is a really great movie. The music, dancing, and acting were all amazing and Natalie Portman blew me away with her acting and transformation into the Black Swan. I've always generally like Natalie Portman as an actress, but this was by far the best acting I've seen from her in that I only saw the character, not the actress. And as for the XXX comment, there was no actual nudity that I can recall and only one brief steamy scene with Natalie and Mila (I wouldn't allow my younger children to watch that one scene), but I've seen way more explicit stuff on basic cable and the scene did actually tie into the story line. If you like psychological thrillers, this is a good one.
Very good movie, Makes you think.. and very suspenseful. I bought this movie after being told by many that it was a very good movie. Natalie Portman played a very convincing part which keeps you on your toes at all points of the movie. Rep from The New Your Post gave this movie 4 Stars **** but I believe it deserves a 5 Star rating ***** for sure.
This is a brilliant piece of film-making. Natalie Portman's performance is incredible.I cannot honestly give it less than 5 stars. However, be forewarned: this is not a sweet ballet movie, despite the authentic setting behind-the-scenes at a ballet company. This is a film about a ballet dancer who craves the role of Swan Queen. When she finally gets it, the pressure to be perfect drives her crazy --- literally. Neither the audience, nor Nina herself (Portman) can tell what is real and what is Nina's delusion. This is fascinating but not what I'd call enjoyable. I'd compare it to watching a suicidal person jump off a cliff. You KNOW she's going to crash on the rocks below, and you know it won't be pretty, but you keep watching anyway. An explicit lesbian sex scene, some clothed but obvious heterosexual groping, and several scenes of self-mutilation make this appropriate for adults only.
